    hi,
    yes you are obviously capable of tackling these jobs, CDS exam requires only graduation degree from some recognized university.
    but you can not apply for cds-2013, for as i can infer from your query you are in 5th semester. you can apply for cds when you are in 4th year of your graduation.
    best of luck.
